Hello everyone-

I have multiple spreadsheets each with a column that lists unique identifiers all with the same leading 3 letters, then several digits- I would like see if any of the whole identifiers (ABCXXXXX) listed in Spreadsheet A are present anywhere in the list of identifiers in Spreadsheet B, C, D, E and F. I am hoping there is an easy way to highlight and see what identifiers Spreadsheet A shares with any of the other lists. Is there anything that I can try to easily do this? Thanks very much in advance for your help

Look at using Power Query, called Get and Transform in 365. You will want to bring each table into PQ editor. Then perform a left outer join to determine what is in first sheet that is in the second sheet.
